We want all children at our school to succeed and be the best people they can be. We want this school and all the children who attend now and in the future to be beacons of our Christian values which under-pin all the work we do. We want all children to have their moment to shine at school, beyond school and in their future lives in a variety of different ways, to have a sense of self and to know that they are enough in themselves.
In addition, we want our school to become a beacon, to shine our light through our community and further afield.
All of these values are drawn from the Bible. In the gospel of Matthew, Jesus tells his followers,
“You are the light of the world. A town on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your father in heaven.”
